This is a ramen shop where you can choose between ``rich'' and ``light'' ramen, so it's hard to know which one is recommended.
My evaluation will be based on eating a variety of foods, but Japanese-style food is really light and easy to eat.
On the other hand, although it has a lot of back fat, it is not as heavy as I expected. If I were to express the word "not heavy" in another way, would it be better to say "slightly heavy but elegant?"

Those who like it light will probably be fine with either choice, but those who like it rich will feel unsatisfied if they choose the Japanese style.

Personally, my favorite dish at this restaurant is the ``Soupless'' from the ``Kotteri'' menu.
In terms of appearance and taste, I would say it's an "elegant Jiro".
It's a big deal for me because I feel like the main family is too heavy.
After eating here once, I always go without soup lol
If it's just without soup, I personally give it a ⭐︎5 in terms of [meal].

Perhaps its strength is that you can choose from both rich and Japanese-style dishes.
Even if you're not good at one or the other, you have a choice.
If you like both, you'll be confused from there in the first place lol
I also think the cost performance is good.

The people at the store seem kind.
It can't be helped because of the area, but there aren't many seats.
I think the store is clean.
Also, it's hard to find parking, but there are several parking spaces at the back of the store, down a narrow road right next to the store.


I was looking for a delicious ramen restaurant in Kawagoe when I came across this place and decided to visit. Since it was around 8pm, there were only a few customers.
I ordered the luxurious but reasonable "Shun Ramen (Soy Sauce)".
A ramen with a light, clear, and beautiful amber-colored soup that is often found in northern Kanto and Tohoku.
First, take a sip of the soup. Does the light but rich soup permeate your stomach? delicious! The noodles are straight, medium-thick noodles, and there isn't much soup involved, but it's not bad. All of the toppings were said to be delicious. Personally, I particularly liked the chashu and found it delicious.
Would it have been okay to have a large portion? I regretted it a little.


Regular portion without the rich soup with back fat. This dish contains mizuna, which balances out the richness with a lightness. Delicious.
Is it unavoidable that the bowl and floor are oily?
I just stopped by and it was a hit 🎯. The wait lady is not friendly. Does it need improvement?
